Subject: After all, riding on your bike through the smog is so much better.
Cute, although slightly dated short reminding Britons about good posture. Keep that back straight! And the fact that you're living in the gallows of London, so it helps to escape the city and go into the country for a while (preferably not by bus though, they're too crowded). Simply but effectively animated, this was very good.
